The Religion of Sinners

“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:8-9

We must beware of deceiving ourselves in denying or excusing our sins. The more we see them–the more we shall esteem and value the remedy.

The Christian religion is the religion of sinners–of such as have sinned, and in whom sin in some measure still dwells.

The Christian life is a life of . . .
continued repentance, humiliation for and mortification of sin,
continual faith in, thankfulness for, and love to the Redeemer, and
hopeful joyful expectation of a day of glorious redemption, in which the believer shall be fully and finally acquitted, and sin abolished forever!

“He will save His people from their sins!” Matthew 1:21

Follow Me…

Follow Me…Mark 1:17

And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”
The call still goes forth today, “Follow Me”.  Being a disciple of Jesus begins with answering this call.
 
“Follow Me…”
This is about KNOWING Jesus as Savior & Lord. To follow is to answer the call to salvation. It is believing in Jesus for salvation. We respond in faith to the new information about who Jesus is.
 
“I will make you to become…”
This is GROWING in our relationship with Jesus. We begin to change into the image of the beloved Son, Jesus. A transformation is taking place in our hearts. This all starts with Jesus…and it is enabled by Jesus. It is His divine power that transforms us.
 
“Fishers of Men…”
Disciples are not simply concerned with going to heaven. Disciples are concerned with GOING for Jesus into all the world with the good news of salvation. We have a new mission! We are preaching the gospel of salvation to the ends of the earth. 
 
Are you a disciple?
 
Do you KNOW Jesus?
 
Are you GROWING in Jesus?
 
Are you GOING for Jesus?
